I picked this up recently but can't find pictures of a similar motor.
The spring clips are absolutely identical to other Jetex models so I presume it's one of theirs?
Any information gratefully received.
This is not one I've seen either. Is it the size of a Jetex 50 or 100? Sorta look like a home build, or some prototype made by the LSARA - the double springs point to its use in a rocket. Mike Ingram made some bespoke motors for his helicopters in the 1950's, but not, I think, like this one.
Have you any info as to where it came from? You say "you picked it up", but from where? That could give us a clue. Interesting ...
I bought a mixed lot of vintage RC equipment and to my surprise this was included. I'll ask the seller but doubt he'll know much about it.
The bore is 3/4" but as I haven't been able to find the dimensions of the various fuel pellets I can't equate this to a model.
Yes it's been suggested this is home made using some Jetex parts and I certainly can't rule that out. As a model engineer I could certainly make this, but it's a very neat job.
